Bobsled

Although the origins of the sled can be traced to the 1880s lumberyards of Albany, N.Y., the best four-man bobsled pilot is from the other side of the Atlantic: German Harald Czudaj. At the Spiral, he is expected to share the spotlight with the Jamaicans. Nicknamed "The Hottest Act on Ice," the Jamaicans have been an Olympic sideshow since they competed at the 1988 Calgary Games.

Curling

Shuffleboard on ice. Top contenders: Sweden, the reigning world champions in the men's game, and Canada (the sport's home office), which has the top women's team. US medal hopefuls include Tim Somerville.

Nordic Combined

This competition comprises nordic jumps in the morning and a cross-country ski race in the afternoon. Top metal contenders include Norway's Bjarte Engen Vik, a bronze medalist in Lillehammer in 1994 who leads the World Cup standing this season, and Mario Stecher of Austria. The US has never won a medal, but Todd Lodwick is a medal hopeful.

Ski Jumping

Three events will be held at the Hakuba Ski Jumping Stadium: normal hill, large hill (Feb. 15), and team (held on the large hill, Feb. 17). The Japanese are expected to fly to the top. Masahiko Harada is trying hard to making a comeback, but he slipped to fifth place during Tuesday's normal-hill competition. The best Japanese jumper this season has been Kazuyoshi Funaki, who became the first Japanese to win the prestigious Four Hills competition in Germany and Austria, and won the silver on Tuesday.

Women's Figure Skating

This competition has danced its way to become the most-watched Olympic event and headlines Week 2. The US has a lot to cheer: Michelle Kwan is favored for the gold, and world champion Tara Lipinski for the silver; Nicole Bobek cannot be ruled out for a bronze. That would be an unprecedented 1-2-3 for the US.
